Ira's always fun to watch!
Then there's this version of Heroin from last month, with an added violin for authenticity...

The sound is more grungy, but that fits the VU aesthetic.

There are also a couple 16-minute versions of them doing Sister Ray:

For those who CANNOT get enough Sister Ray!

And, for a bit of contrast, their John Cale cover:

And, just because it's one of my favorite memories of them, their George Harrison cover:

On the penultimate night of the Hanukkah shows this year they did a pretty version of Jorma's Song for the North Star with Devendra Banhart.
